With the widening of Spout Springs Road, is there a way to be able to check with the DOT on daily construction plans/lane closures to help me decide which way I will need to take to get places?
The Georgia Department of Transportation provides road updates as they occur but doesn’t have a service that provides daily updates, said Brandon Kirby, the DOT’s district engineer.
“We also do not have a website where daily construction activities are posted for readers,” he said.
Also, the DOT has a service known as Rave that sends emergency communications and other important information via text message and email. Rave doesn’t charge a fee for the service.
